This was the second time my wife and I ate at Brazil Gourmet Pizzeria & Grill. We introduced some friends to the restaurant and, instead of pizza, had the Churrasco Misto which we all shared along with some appetizers! My wife, who is not a big fan of steak, ate some of it (along with the chicken, shrimp and chorizo) and said that it was the best steak she’s had! The atmosphere was great and there was even some live music for a little bit during our time there! Thanks for a great evening!

Manalu is a new authentic Italian restaurant by Chef/Owner Marco Pontecorvo. The name was to combine all three of his family members names. MA for Marco, NA for Naomi, his daughter, and LU for Lucia, his wife.

About the restaurant
Three brothers and a brother-in-law from El Salvador realized their long-held dream of opening a restaurant together in November of last year. Jaime Sorto, his brothers Hugo and Jose Bonilla, and his brother-in-law Jose Zelaya looked for a name that symbolizes their concept of two cultures coming together.
They chose La Malinche, the name given to a historical figure who has been at the center of controversy for centuries. The noble Mexican woman was enslaved and given to Hernán Cortés, a Spanish conquistador. She became his interpreter and confidante. Their son was viewed as the first mestizo, a child of mixed blood.
Many Mexicans consider La Malinche or Doña Marina to have been a traitor, but today, she is also honored as the symbolic mother of the country’s mixed-race people.
At La Malinche, all of the starters, vegetables, meats and seafood are served as Spanish tapas, called botanas in Mexico.

Excellent, as always. We were the only ones there, so it was quiet.

The five of us ordered vastly different meals and everyone of us really enjoyed our food. From eggplant parmigiana to Greek salad with salmon to a personal barbecue chicken pizza to lasagna and veal Marsala, everything was delicious. The only thing wrong was the excessive noise from so many people in the restaurant.

North Bethesda
About the restaurant
The name Melina is rooted in Greek origin and derives from the Greek word for "honey". "Mel" can be derived from the name Melissa meaning "honey-bee". The restaurant is named after the daughter of Co-Founder Chef Dimitri Moshovitis. “Melina” will honor the strength of the matriarchy in the Greek family. It will lean vegetable-forward with modernized Greek classics from the sea and grilled meats. Greek cuisine is all about freshness and quality of ingredients and that will be on display in a fine casual setting.

The food and service were great, as usual! What I noticed is that they were seating all the tables close to the other occupied tables and as time went by it got very loud in there. It was difficult for us to hear one another and we were at a small table for 4 people.

La Vela is always outstanding! The food is wonderful, the service is attentive and professional and it’s an excellent place to share dinner with friends. The duck they adapted to meet my wife’s food sensitivities was outstanding, and the other member of our group who got the duck said it was the best he ever had. We’re looking forward to our next visit!
